Our Conversations with Cloth series continues connecting Japanese shibori tradition to the world, traversing cultural landscapes from the familiar to the fantastic and mysterious. We will celebrate shibori phenomena from American tie-dye to rich and varied cultural traditions in North, Central, and West Africa; from Indian-subcontinent and Indonesia and Cambodia to Southwestern China and the Himalayas; and finally to pre-Columbian South America and Mexico. Using shibori as a common language, our co-hosts, Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada and Ana Lisa Hedstrom, will decipher various patterns revealing memories imprinted in the cloth.
